There’s nothing more compelling than seeing a softer side of the usual big, strong hero. After all, they prove that they are not better than everyone else. And one TV series on the current show roster that does this well is The Mandalorian and the Book of Boba Fett (BOBF).

In the first season of The Mandalorian, we assumed that the Mandalorian was ruthless and cold-blooded, thanks to Jango Fett’s representation in the original Star Wars films. increase. The Mandalorians are a deeply wounded race. They have witnessed the destruction of their planet by the Empire, which affected everyone, including those who were not home during the Night of a Thousand Tears. Instead, these people are scattered across the galaxy, weakening their faith and hopes of restoring Mandalore to its former glory.

As a result, the Mandalore Diaspora built a wall to keep his trauma from being seen by anyone. It’s a normal reaction of someone who has been hurt many times. But when those walls are broken, we find that underneath all the hardcore armor is a soft heart full of emotion.
In BOBF Boba was saved by the Tuscan people. They were tough, but their stance softened when they realized that Boba was not meant to do any harm. rice field. Halfway through the show, we learn how loyal the two were to each other, to the point that Boba was ready to take on a massive syndicate after the Tuscan group’s death.
I don’t think I’ve said anything about THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT yet, but I’m really enjoying it. Especially the second episode was well done. The work they are doing to redeem the Raiders of Tuscany is pretty incredible.

Likewise, Boba is a lover who understands the pain of the marginalized and continues to recruit them to his cause. I proved it.
Similarly, Din Djarin is a mushy figure. We’ve repeatedly seen him defend marginalized groups knowing that it might cost him his life. It says a lot about his personality. He may be good at what he does, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care.
Imagine telling someone 10 years ago that they would get a live-action version of Bokatan with R5-D4 and Baby Yoda on a show set after Return of the Jedi. 🥰🤯#mandalorian #bokatan #glog pic.twitter.com/CeAEK9ARD4

Despite her ambitions, Bo-Katan is another great example. How she ran to help a stranded Din Djarin in Madaroa Mine testifies to her loyalty and care for her people. She may go crazy because of her dreams, but that doesn’t mean she lets people die.
Armorers are another example. He has a steely demeanor, but when a monster attacked the children’s school entrance ceremony, he jumped in front of the demon and saved the boy. She feels that Grog is responsible for Din Djarin, but she still cares about her “abandoned child”.
Ding misses Grog and thinks of him all the time 🥺 The armorer made something for Grog and tied it with a cloth in the shape of a small butterbean head 😭 pic.twitter.com/h6jVC3RTOd

Character growth like this is what the arc depicts why they are the way they are and is a good way to layer the story. and prove that people are complex beings with emotions. The only way to understand them is to peel back each layer. This requires viewers to be aware of their own complexities.
